Del Webb is a highly respected retirement
community builder, and one of their latest developments is
Sierra Canyon in Reno, Nevada. This age-restricted,
active-adult community is located within a master-planned
golf community, Somersett, and sits in a beautiful
mountain setting 30 miles from sparkling Lake Tahoe.
Sierra Canyon offers six floor plans and when finished, it
will have 1,200 single-family homes.
Homeowner dues are $174 per month and apply to all Del Web amenities, including use of the tennis courts, a
state-of-the-art fitness center, an indoor heated pool, an indoor walking
track and Somersett's 27 miles of paved and natural trails, as well as
maintenance of common areas. The Canyon Nine is the local, 9
hole golf course; several membership levels are available (dress
codes are in effect). Visit here
for more information.
Somersett has a new, spiffy Town Center with shops,
a bank, post office, market and more, so many everyday errands can
be accomplished without leaving the community. Reno (population 204,000)
is a booming city (but with a crime rate below the national average)
and offers plenty of other shopping and cultural
opportunities. One of the country's most spectacular areas,
Lake Tahoe, is just up the road across the California border and is
a paradise for outdoor recreation lovers.
Nevada is the driest state in the nation and
receives about 7 inches of rainfall a year. Reno sits at an
elevation of 4,400 feet, and Sierra Canyon is at 5,000 feet, so the
area does see some snow but usually no more than 2 or 3 feet over
the season. Summer rains come in the form of brief
thunderstorms. The average February high
temperature is 51
degrees, and the average July high temperature is 92 degrees.
Sunny days are in abundance
